Medtronic to Discontinue Sof-Sensor Glucose Sensor
Medical device giant Medtronic has announced that it is discontinuing sales of its Sof-sensor glucose sensor effective Dec. 1, 2015.
The Irish devicemaker says the discontinuation of its sensor is not related to safety or performance issues.
The company’s helpline team will continue to provide technical support for the sensor as long as needed.
“As we prepare to pave the way for new products with improved therapeutic benefit, we must ensure only our most advanced CGM sensor technology remains on the market,” the company said. —Michael Cipriano
